China values India ties but firm on 'sovereign rights': Foreign minister
BEIJING: China always values the good neighbourliness and friendship with India, but it is also firm on upholding its "sovereign rights", interests and territorial integrity, Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said on Saturday.
Beijing handled the Doklam standoff with "restraint", showing the "emphasis" it places on ties with New Delhi, he said.
"We believe as we continue to engage in in-depth strategic communication and promptly dispel strategic misgivings, the strategic value of China-India cooperation will speak for itself and there will be a prospect of 'the Dragon and Elephant dancing together' and 1+1=11 effect as expected by the leaders," Yi said.

The restraint shown by the Chinese was actually a constraint because of courage shown by India.

China has only one intention, to destroy everyone one else for their own gain. There is only one way to deal with them. Call their bluff and use force when necessary. Or die anyway
